Jack Kloeber, Owner of Kromite, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in life sciences, decision analytics, and portfolio management.
While serving as an Army Officer in the U.S. Army, Dr. Kloeber ventured into the world of academia and taught graduate school at the Air Force Institute of Technology for six years. In addition, he taught mathematics at West Point during his time as an Army Officer. Following this, he stepped into the realm of businesses needing economic analysis for decisions. Dr. Kloeber entered the pharmaceutical industry and eventually moved into the role of portfolio manager. From there, he realized he could do a lot more good as a consultant rather than working for a single company. He joined as partner of Kromite in 2007 and remained in this role until 2012, when he became the owner.
Dr. Kloeber was recently chosen as CEO for Microbial Pharmaceuticals, a biotech company based on combining technological breakthroughs to produce many more promising natural products for Agriculture and Pharmaceutical pipelines.
Dr. Kloeber was fortunate to have all three of his degrees funded by the U.S. Army. He earned a doctorate from the School of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1995. He attributes his success in the industry to luck, hard work, and making honest and genuine connections with people, which has helped him to create a strong and reliable network in his field. In addition to his work in management, he has contributed book chapters to 2014’s “Portfolio Optimization” and 2011’s “Portfolio Decision Analysis.” Dr. Kloeber has co-authored more than 17 published articles in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Kloeber’s work has earned several awards. In 2000 and again in 2016, he received (as co-author) the Decision Analysis Practice Award from the Decision Analysis Society & Society for Decision Professionals. He received the Franz Edelman Prize from INFORMS in 2015 for leading the Agriculture Analytics effort with Syngenta Seeds, and he has received a Legion of Merit Award upon retiring from the U.S. Army as a Lieutenant Colonel. Dr. Kloeber is a former board member of the Decision Analysis Society and past president and fellow of the Society for Decision Professionals. He is currently serving on the advisory board for the Industrial Engineering Department at Lehigh University. As a 27 year member of INFORMS, he most recently was the General Chair of their largest Analytics Conference ever.
